How concerned are you about CRIME . . . where you work, live or play? How prepared are you against a violent attack? Can you adequately defend yourself, your spouse, your children, your loved ones against armed robberies, home invasions, car-jackings?
No matter where you call home in this city; Lakeview, Uptown, Mid-City, the Irish Channel, the 9th Ward, the East, the Westbank or where you go to work in the Metro Area; New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, Laplace, Chalmette, Mandeville, Covington, Madisonville, Slidell, Hammond . . . violent crime should be of great concern. Why not learn to become your family’s first responder? If you are an employer, why not offer to provide your employees the proper training with GunSmartNOLA’s Defensive Handgun Classes?
The U.S. Constitution, under the 2nd Amendment, recognizes our right to own firearms. But just because it is a right, why should YOU consider arming yourself?
The obvious answer is to be able to defend yourself. With 9-1-1 response times varying from department to department you simply cannot wait minutes, or even hours, for law enforcement to arrive, especially when you may only have mere seconds. Regardless if you are elderly, female, disabled, small in stature, in poor health, or simply outnumbered, a firearm in trained hands puts everyone on a more level playing field at a minimum and might actually give you the advantage. The majority of self-defense cases involving a handgun do not end in a shooting. Criminals are looking for an easy target and simply displaying a handgun will more often than not scare the criminal away.

As a former law enforcement officer, Mark brought numerous additional items of information and…
“Great class—THOROUGHLY enjoyed it and learned a lot.”
“I had a very enjoyable, easy-learning day with Mark as a guide. The late evening shooting range was a really good time as I had never been to a shooting range before. Mark is a really an upright guy and keeps everyone interested! To my surprise, he was the least expensive class around. It was…
“Even if you never plan to carry, this is a great class to take….know the laws, know your rights!”
“Thank you for sharing your knowledge on the safe and proper ways of handling and shooting a firearm. It’s always a learning experience and you have taught me more than I thought I already knew. I apologize for the malfunctions my pistol had. I appreciate you clearing it for me. Itwas the first time I…
“Ladies, this course was great! For years I assumed I was holding my gun correctly (wrong). Mark’s excellent instruction made me feel much more confident when handling my gun. I must say my accuracy has also improved with this course. I highly recommend GunSmartNola for instruction regarding your safety.”
